Birds and (more) Butterflys

In the midst of a creative dry spell, I asked Facebook what manner of animal I should use as my next subject.  The choice was overwhelmingly for a bird, an eagle specifically.  Though I love eagles, I had a hard time working on an idea for an eagle that did not seem patriotic and cliched.  Wildlife art has a reputation for being cliched and though I might be as guilty as the rest, I try to avoid that sentimentality in what I do.  Since I needed some more small works in my collection, I settled on hummingbirds, happy little visitors to my garden.  I also have one more addition to my butterfly series.  These are all 6X6.
